Falls Festival 2012 lineup: Second announcement

The next batch of acts for the Falls festival 2012 lineup has been revealed with another seven acts joining the New Year’s Eve festivities.

The announcement is led by Hilltop Hoods, who helped us celebrate the beginning of 2010 at Falls in Lorne. Indie kids Bombay Bicycle Club and First Aid Kit will return to Australia for their second visits of 2012 following their warmly received visits earlier in the year, while Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs makes up for his last minute cancellation last year to bring us his debut album Trouble.

Stay tuned for several more announcements as the final lineup for the festival, which is celebrating its twenty-year anniversary in Lorne and tenth anniversary in Tasmania, will feature 80 acts.
